The mission of the Enterprise Rent-a-Car Institute for Renewable Fuels is to develop and apply technologies to enhance the potential of oilseed crops, algae and bioenergy grasses as sources of sustainable bioenergy.
The Danforth Center’s Commitment to Bioenergy Research, Replacing fossil fuels with sustainable sources of energy is imperative for our future. Solar and wind are part of the solution, but not a complete answer. Current sources of biofuels compete with food crops and cannot be scaled to provide the sustainable sources of energy the world’s growing population needs. At the Danforth Center, we are exploring how plants harness the energy of sunlight. We’re using that knowledge to develop
